    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Accountemps (Dallas, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I was recently invited for an interview with Accountemps in Dallas. I spoke with a recruiter via phone and then visited their office for a face-to-face interview to discuss Accounting and Finance job opportunities. My recruiter was very personable and put me at ease as we discussed my past work experiences, what my current job interests were and where my ideal work locations are. He outlined the different types of positions they fill from temporary to direct-hire and the variations in between. I also learned that as an Accountemps employee you are eligible for benefits after successfully working a certain number of hours. I am very excited about the possibilities that Accountemps has to offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Accountemps (Fishers, IN).

    Interview

    They are more interested in getting you on their payroll system to show they have viable candidates than they are in actually finding you an appropriate long term position. Applied to a position they had advertised. This position did not really exist, but was used to get candidates into their database. Interview last may 15 minutes, long enough for them to obtain all your personal information and have you sign paperwork using their services.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Accountemps (Orlando, FL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    My interviewer's name is Tom. He made me feel very comfortable and at ease by making eye contact and paying attention to what I was saying, rather than staring at a clip-board thinking about his next question. He seemed to be understanding about my situation and my needs and the fact that I was am re-entering the work force after eight years. The only problem is that it went so well, I was convinced I would be getting a call. However, as of yet, I have not.
